Charlottesville City Schools to Receive Less Federal Funding
Charlottesville City Schools planned to ask council for help after being hit by sequestration cuts. Now that request has been taken off the table.
Schools expected to get nearly $1.5 million from federal Title One money. After sequestration, they are getting $140,000 less.
Juandiego Wade, chair of the school board, said the board approved a budget earlier this year that did not account for those funds. Wade says a $140,000 cut will not hurt Title One programs -- especially with such a large budget.
He says the division will still be able to provide a world class education to its students.
